Pouch for Windows 8 - on sale for $1.49

A few days ago I sat down and reviewed one of my favorite news consumption apps, Pouch. The elegant Pocket client for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 brings a clean and uncluttered reading experience to your favorite mobile devices.

The copy of Pouch for Windows 8 used in last week’s review was a private beta, not yet available to the general public. In anticipation of the upcoming software update, the developer has dropped the price of Pouch by 50% to $1.49.

The older generation of Pouch isn’t as nice as the copy we reviewed, but this is a great way to get the application at a low price and piggyback the free upgrade. We are told the price of Pouch will be returned to its normal $2.99 price tag once the upgrade is available in a few weeks.

You can purchase Pouch for Windows 8 here or if you first want to check out the review then you may do so here.

What are some of your favorite apps to enjoy personally curated news?

Great price for a great app! I have it both on Windows 8 and Windows Phone. highly recommend it.

In Limbo says:

Genuine question: It Pouch any better than Weave? I bought the ad-free version. I love it, but I'm always open to alternatives.

SonofNun says:

In Limbo,
It's hard to say if Pouch was better than Weave, since they are built to do two different things.
Weave is a news curator app that pulls new articles down from sources selected by the user.
On the other hand, Pouch is an app to manage individual articles that a user wants to read later. If a user is browsing the web and comes accross a cool article on WPCentral (), but they don't have the time to read it then, they can save it to Pouch. Then later, when they have the time, they can easily find the article they wanted, and give it a read.
I hope this helps  lear things up.
Thanks,
Joshua (Pouch Developer)

In Limbo says:

That's actually a very awesome concept . . . which is why I'll be downloading it ASAP. Thanks for the prompt response. Look for my review buddy. Cheers!

SonofNun says:

In Limbo,
I will most definitely look for it! Thanks for your support!
(Where will I find the review when it's done?)
Thanks,
Joshua

No link, or you just out of links? Viewing through the app.

Hey Michael,
I already have weave on my phone and nextgen reader on my surface. Would You still recommend pouch over these? Because I would like the unified experience
Greetings

SonofNun says:

chubibapao,

See my comment above for information regarding the difference between apps like Weave and Pouch.

Thanks,
Joshua (Pouch Developer)

chubibapao says:

Thanks a lot, is there also a IE pkugin or just chrome?

SonofNun says:

I don't think there is an IE plugin, but there is a bookmarklet. See http://getpocket.com/welcome?b=Bookmarklet

Love this app on Windows phone 8! I haven't bought a Surface RT yet so I can't speak for Windows 8

icyrock1 says:

Is pouch like Pocket? 

its a (very nice) 3rd party app for pocket, now on w8 and wp8

I wanna see that Nokia bit

Fuse for the win, nothing beats the Ipsum theme ;)

ihavewp8 says:

I like 360 news

Rishicash says:

If I purchase this for W8 now, do I have to purchase another app for WP8 too?

SonofNun says:

Richicash,

Yes, if you want both, you do need to purchase them both. The WP8 and Win8 marketplaces don't allow for concurrent purchases. So just like Skulls of the Shogun, even though the two apps work together, you need to purchase them both.

Thanks,
Joshua (Pouch Developer)

Jazmac says:

I bought Pouch for my Win 8 laptop and I get this Unable to Set Image message.  What do  I do to fix this?

SonofNun says:

Jazmac,
Thanks for the purchase!
Sorry about that. That's a known bug. Don't worry, it'll be fixed in the next release.
Thanks,
Joshua (Pouch Developer)

Is anybody else having problems downloading apps, including this one, from the Windows store? On my Surface RT and my PC, things are incredibly slow over mutliple wifi connections and apps won't install. They error out with code 0x80070426 if the store ever responds at all.
